Ageing is something that happens to all of us so, anti-ageing is something that applies to us all.

Believe it or not the ageing process starts as early on as 25 Its something we all want to prevent so the earlier we start taking care of our skin the better, but don’t worry its never to late to get started.

One of the reasons ageing happens is when the collagen and elastin in the skin starts to break down. Collagen and elastin are what gives our skin its structure so as the levels of both these fibres decrease our skins can start to become slack and fine lines and wrinkles will start to appear. The ageing process is something we can’t stop happening however there are things we can all do to help keep it at bay.

Where to start?

First of all start with diet. Diet plays a big part in the over all general health of our skin. For example anti-oxidants are very important in helping to protect the skin so not only should they be used on the skin topical we can also source these from a diet high in fruit and vegetables so always make sure you do your best to consume your 5 a day.


Water is also one of the most important factors of having healthy skin. 2L a day should always be drunk if you can every day. Water as we all know helps to hydrate the skin. If we don’t drink enough the skin can look dehydrated which can enhance fine lines and wrinkles so always try and stay as hydrated as you can.


Once the basics of diet and water intake are under control we can then focus on skin care. Skin care is very important in helping our skin both feel and look more youthful. It important in the day we protect our skin this can be done by using anti oxidants and an SPF to protect the skin from harmful UVA rays and any environmental factor which can harm our skin on a daily basis. In the evening we then need to repair our skin to help build up our collagen, elastin and DNA structures in the skin. The best way to do this is to use a moisturiser with vitamin A in. vitamin A helps to build back up our broken strands of DNA helping to prevent and slow down the process of ageing but also turns back the clock with some that may have already happened.
